The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Anyone Drink Kefir???

    Dumb ass name but some good stuff! Aside from having all these natural antioxidants and other really good for you junk it has 14 grams of protien per 1 cup! And calcium is the same a milk at 30 %.

    In addition to beneficial bacteria and yeast, kefir contains minerals and essential amino acids that help the body with healing and maintenance functions. The complete proteins in kefir are partially digested and therefore more easily utilized by the body. Tryptophan, one of the essential amino acids abundant in kefir, is well known for its relaxing effect on the nervous system. Because kefir also offers an abundance of calcium and magnesium, which are also important minerals for a healthy nervous system, kefir in the diet can have a particularly profound calming effect on the nerves.
    Kefir's ample supply of phosphorus, the second most abundant mineral in our bodies, helps utilize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for cell growth, maintenance and energy.

    Kefir is rich in Vitamin B12, B1, and Vitamin K. It is an excellent source of biotin, a B Vitamin which aids the body's assimilation of other B Vitamins, such as folic acid, pantothenic acid, and B12. The numerous benefits of maintaining adequate B vitamin intake range from regulation of the kidneys, liver and nervous system to helping relieve skin disorders, boost energy and promote longevity.

    Ok, nutshell. Store-bought kefir is garbage, do not buy it. Best resource around PERIOD is this:Dom's kefir page. Read it, get on the yahoo group, some kind person will likely send you some grains if you ask for them, maybe free (that's how I got mine), or just pay postage, to start making your own. The taste may take some time to get to like. READ THE PAGE.

    Pretty much all of it says the store-bought stuff is crap. Anyway, REAL kefir has a specific yeast component which forms a symbiotic relationship with the bacteria. This makes an environment which is resistant to pathogenic and disease causing bacteria and yeasts (like candida). It will make this environment in your gut, as well as provide nutrients to you and aid digestion. Since it has a yeast component, it has a tiny alcohol content, so it falls under the regulation of ATFE just like booze (in the US anyway).
    Store-bought kefir lacks the yeast component (so they can sell it without alcohol tax), is non-sustainable (it doesn't grow and live like real kefir, so you have to buy more, instead of making it), and is loaded with sugar. It's basically an overpriced yogurt smoothie.

    If you don't want to go the kefir path, try making your own yogurt first. It's easier, it's super delicious, it is WAY better than store bought yogurt, it is a healthy probiotic, and will save you lots of money. And, you can strain it to make yogurt cheese, which makes a lot of yummy high-protein sauces like tatziki (on gyros!). I can tell you how if you're interested.
